Samsung’s new ATIV Book 9 Lite is a thin and light notebook for folks that want the portability of an ultrabook, but who are willing to sacrifice a bit on performance in order to save some money.

The notebook has a 13.3 inch touchscreen display, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB solid state disk, just like other members of the new ATIV Book 9 family. But has an AMD A6 processor instead of an Intel Haswell chip.

That processor is one of AMD’s new chips aimed at low-end and mid-range laptops and mobile devices.  It’s a 2 GHz quad-core processor with AMD Radeon HD 8400 graphics.

While the chip uses more power than a typical Intel Haswell laptop processor, AMD is positioning this chip as a competitor to Intel’s latest Core i3 or Pentium processors, so basically you get mid-range performance and lower battery life than you’d get with a Haswell chip.

The good news is that the ATIV Book 9 Lite should be cheaper than a typical ultrabook with an Intel Core processor — it’ll probably sell for less than half the price.

The Samsung ATIV Book Lite fetures a 13.3 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, measures 0.66 inches thick, and weighs about 3.2 pounds.

  1. I want it, like a lot, i mean i would much prefer a 1080p display, but i like the fact that this is the same shell as the intel one,but with an AMD CPU and a lower res screen to keep the price down, but still depending on how low the price goes, im not sure 1366×768 is an acceptable resolution anymore, personally
